Bust out the champagne! Ustream just broke a World Record!!
From the Guiness World Records Site:
“The most content ingested by an online video service is an average of 70.49 hours per minute, achieved by Ustream, as verified on 29 June 2011.
This average figure is based on a total of 37.05 million hours of content ingested by Ustream in the 12 month period of June 2010 to May 2011. Peak content ingestion was in May 2011, with 3.721 million hours ingested, or 83.36 hours per minute. This is close to double that of YouTube, which announced on its 6th birthday in May 2011 that its users upload 48 hours of content onto the site per minute.”
John Ham, our CEO and Founder, had this to say: “Achieving this Guinness World Record is an amazing milestone for Ustream. Much of our success is procured by our dedicated broadcasters and viewers who enjoy sharing LIVE content with the world. As users broadcast more memorable moments on Ustream, we look forward to touching more lives and making more records.”
